I was given a salmon filet that had been frozen, but not properly wrapped, so decided to try this recipe instead of throwing it away. I cut off freezer burn spots and made burgers. I did make a couple changes, used whole wheat bread (didn't have white), added fresh chives, and jarred roasted red pepper that I had left over. I grilled the patties and my husband & l absolutely loved them. Usually for salmon patties, I get them from Costco. But, this was easy and so good, just no comparison to the frozen ones.
